When using adhesive tape for racing harnesses...

Yesterday, 05:26 PM

what do you guys use on the adhesive side to keep it from sticking to things you don't want it to stick to?


It was brought to my attention

that a resin caster who I’m not familiar with has started making copies of my Fairmont pro stock body.  He has a closed group on Facebook.  If you search WHISKEY RIDGE RESIN & DECALS you should find it.  I haven’t seen any publicly accessible websites by that name.  I’ve attached a picture of his copy of my body, just so you can see what it looks like as compared to mine.  I just wanted to let anyone know, who might be interested.  If you know of other modelers who you think would like to (or should) know, feel free to pass this info on.  Thanks...

PS - If I have any updates I'll post it here.


Futurattraction website woes

03 June 2014 - 04:45 AM

Hey everyone.  I wanted to let you know that I encountered some issues with my website when I was making some updates a few weeks ago.  Although what is visible looks okay, I lost all of the saved site info behind-the-scenes.  I was waiting to see if the web company could recover my lost pages.  I heard back from them yesterday, after several e-mails back and forth, that my files can’t be recovered.  Grrrrrrrr.

 

I am going to have to rebuild each page and re-upload it.  I’m trying to get ready for a show this weekend, so won’t be able to make any progress on my website ‘til next week.  Just wanted everyone to know that if things don’t look right or something isn’t working, it’s because I’ve been waiting for an answer from my web provider and currently don't have time to attend to it.

 

Maybe the Lord is telling me it’s time to do some updating on my website.  LOL


Futurattraction New, Improved and/or WIP Products Update

09 December 2013 - 11:56 AM

New:

I've now have one-piece 16x33 slicks available in 1/25th scale.  They are an excellent replacement for the 2-piece Monogram/Revell slicks and will work with Monogram/Revell wheels, plus the ones from Pegasus.  As with my 14x32s, the tread surface on these is smooth, with no seams to deal with.  The only “work” required is to remove the vent material.

For the 1/16th crowd, I’m now offering a 4-link bracket set.  The axle housing hole diameter is drawn at .188” and the rod end hole diameter is .030”.  Both of these may require cleaning up and/or resizing to fit the tube diameter and rod ends the builder may be using.

Improved:

I have revised my narrowed 9-inch Ford kit to include a 1-piece housing instead of the multi-piece one I’ve sold in the past.

 

In conjunction with my revised 9-inch, I am also introducing a revised PE 4-link kit that matches up to housing.  Back brace reliefs and a slightly lowered coil-over shock mount are the only revisions.  I have a limited number of these on-hand at this moment but will be getting more.

 

WIPs:

I am working on a new, skinny front drag tire that (I believe) more accurately portrays Goodyear’s Frontrunner.  It is designed to fit all the popular 1/24th and 1/25th scale drag race front wheels.  It comes with unlettered sidewalls so could easily be outfitted with your favorite front tire decals.

 

I have two new Cragar SuperTrick wheels in the works, one spindle mount and one hub-mount, that will work with the new front tires or any of the other skinny, drag kit tires.  Dimensionally, they are identical to the front drag wheels in the Monogram kits, such as the Glidden Thunderbirds.  They will use the same separate rear ring as the Monogram kits.  They will have a 3/32” spindle hole.

 

Other products in the works are both1/25th and 1/16th scale N2O bottles and photo etch brackets.  Those will hopefully be coming out in the next few weeks.

 

I'll try to post pics of some of the other items soon.
